Stuart Carter, head of PR & marketing, TrustMark said, ‘With the economy in its current state, many people do not have the money to either move home or even completely overhaul their current house, so they are tending to do more low cost home improvements to update their properties, such as electrical work. Many of us still require a professional tradesman to do the work so we want to advise consumers to be extra vigilant and only use reputable and legitimate tradesmen. We are here to signpost consumers to good quality and trustworthy firms and to help homeowners select a local tradesman with confidence.’
TrustMark, which has the largest database of on site inspected licensed tradesmen in the country, continues to expand its database of accredited tradesman in the UK, providing national coverage with over 21,000 licenced trades.
